, of course, we know how things will go from there? >> laura: before we go to ed, tell us about this big balanced budget amendment added after all this tea party pressure. added this to the final boehner bill, passed with still a squeaker vote what does that actually mean. >> 6:30 tonight eastern time, the second boehner bill passed. it's really the thirds if you count cut, cap, and balance. this bill which was so unpalatable to his tea party pull it from consideration. consideration. by virtue of still the same bill two rounds of increasing the debt ceiling. so on. for the president to get round 2 of the extension to the debt ceiling, congress must have sent to the states for their ratification a balanced budget amendment. that requires in each chamber, the house and the senate, a two thirds vote. >> laura: they don't have two in other words of the house of representatives. >> the idea that they would ever see a two thirds voted for balanced budget amendment is folly. but this was what the tea party caucus demanded. >> laura: let's go to ed henry. ed is joining us now from the white hou
for john boehner, i think boehner was exactly right, his instincts were let's get a big deal, the problem is he couldn't sell it to his caucus dominated by tea party who consider themselves patriots, but this -- >> six months ago you heard bill talking about it with stuart varney, said we shouldn't be raising taxes in a down economy. andrea. >> he's absolutely right. these crazy tea partiers that bob loves to blast every chance he gets have the same position that president obama essentially had in 2006 when he said we shouldn't vote to raise the debt ceiling and if we did it would be irresponsible so the president, big political issues on the line but i agree with bob in one respect, john boehner has real trouble within his conference. there are members of the gop caucus that have come out and said we're not voting for any kind of deal as long as it includes raising the debt ceiling so boehner does have to work with democrats. big challenges on both sides. heather: democrats bob certainly have a problem, a lot of them are saying no cuts to social security, no cuts to medicare, no cuts to
says she manages the migraine with medication and is otherwise healthy. with all of that said, big news out of texas today, the gor rick perry who said he recently feels a calling to national politics has now gotten green light from key constituent, his wife. >> as my wife was talking to me and says get out of your comfort zone. yeah, being governor of texas is a great job. but sometimes you are called to step in to the fray. >> reporter: no word on a timetable yet. unclear whether perry will participate in the straw poll. his aides here tried to respect event facilities and were told they missed the deadline now they're pulling back resources. perhaps he won't participate the straw poll but there is a chance he could be on the debate stage a few days beforehand. >> bret: a lot of flirting here going on. thank you. we'll talk about it in the panel. the man charged with the 2009 fort hood shooting rampage major nidal hasan was arraigned today and faces 13 counts of premeditated murder and 32 counts of attempted premeditated murder. the prosecution is seeking the death penalty. we'll show
of floating short-term or mini deal on the debt ceiling, although it wouldn'n't be perfect. >> the big problems wouldn't go away. it just delays the moment of truth. i say better now than then but if we can't, we'll take the savings we get now and relitigate this as we get closer to the election. >> the white house toughened the language in recent days, criticizing congress and specifically republicans. speaking to the national education association on sunday, vice president biden sounded campaign mode using class war fair argument against the republican -- war warfare argument against the republicans. >> they believe 1% of the wage earners controlling 1% of the wealth is a vehicle to spur economic growth. because those with the wealth know the most that will know best to do with that wealth. >> some republicans have punched back by being critical of the process the white house chose to address the problem including negotiations led by the vice president. we have been waiting on secret talks to somehow settle our problem. but congress is the constitutional place for this to be decided.
're in for another deep rough patch, i think, they are getting very nervous about re-election. and, the big winner out of a grand bargain, would have absolutely been president obama, because, the not only would things have hopefully improved but he also could take credit for making a really big grown-up decision. going forward, though, you know, in two years, or actually, in one year, now, next year, after the election, it is hard for me to see how republicans will not actually be in a better position, even if they don't win the white house, there is a good chance they'll win the senate and almost certainly still control the house and i think republicans will be in a tremendously strong position, to get the kind of deal that speaker boehner went in there looking for, but clearly was not going to get from the white house. >> jamie: charlie, seems like those dismal job numbers may have changed the imperative for the house white house. how close are both sides to accepting the proposal that vice presidented by eb was able to negotiate and is that all we need? will it get us where we need to be with r
jobs for christie's auction house, sure they are. for big, strong. >> i want to see numbers. you said millionaires and billionaires what he means are people making over $250,000. >> we already got the tax increases in obamacare. he has already passed taxes. now he wants taxes. >> name one tax increase? >> obamacare, conveniently not until 2014. >> not true. >> i give you credit. boehner is in a difficult spot because of the members of his con france that says he won't vote for anything, any kind of deal because we won't vote to raise the debt ceiling. he has to work with them. >> not all of you do not think it's a little difficult for boehner when people say nothing, absolutely nothing? grover norquist from k-street, he ought to be sent to gitmo as a terrorist for being a national. >> now you finally like gitmo. >> i like it for grover. that's for sure. >> can i make one other point? keep in mind the debt ceiling increase is not for the new spending but to pay for money appropriated by democrats and republicans alike. >> wait, wait, wait. what are you talking about? >> time-out. what
of the united states of america. and the craziest part -- >> the u.n. wants to spend a big chunk of that money on things that have nothing to do with climate change in third world countries. stuart varney is here to weigh in on this. so where does this come from? where does the money come from and where would they like to see it go? >> where do you want to start on this one? this shows you how totally out of wack the global warming community is with american public opinion. what the u.n. says is this -- we need $1.9 trillion each and every year for 40 years in order to solve the climate problem worldwide and to reduce poverty and hunger worldwide. so they're bringing in poverty and hunger along with climate change. >> it's not all green. it's poverty, hunger and everything else. >> but you cannot eradicate poverty and hunger without going green because if you don't go green, you increase poverty and hunger. you got it? >> so where is this money expected to come from and how much is coming from the united states? >> ok, we contribute 22% of the united nations budget so theoretically, if this
is at the white house for us. first though mike emanuel is live on capitol hill. big question now. what changes, mike, did the speaker have to make to get the votes that he needed on this? >> harris, bottom line he put in a balanced budget amendment proposal that was the key for some conservative republicans who weren't quite comfortable with the speaker's plan. got him to the 218 votes necessary. but before the votes were cast, here is some of the speaker's passionate plea to his fellow republicans. >> this house has acted. it is time for the administration and time for our colleagues across the aisle put something on the table. tell us where you are. [cheers] >> and indeed that has been a rallying cry of republicans here on capitol hill. where is your plan, mr. president? where is your plan, senate democratic leadership? as for the senate democratic leadership what they don't like about it is the balanced budget amendment among other things but that is a key sticking point. take a listen. >> now the speaker has brought in the requirement to extend the debt ceiling we have to amend the constit
about it. >> trying to follow the guns is a big part of the drug cartel thing. they tried programs. >> that is the problem, they didn't track them. they gave them to them. didn't work. >> gave 2,500 and. >> it didn't work. the american people deserve to know that. >> i agree. >> then this is not unreasonable to ask the gun shoppe to report the ridiculous weapons of mass destruction that the national rifle association loves so much. >> the n.r.a. for you are symbolic of people who own guns. that is what it is. it's just people who belong to an organization who own guns. the security is not the issue. >> it's the not the gunowners of the national rifle association, it's the thugs that run it. >> maybe nancy pelosi and harry reid can answer why $10 million of taxpayer money in the stimulus bill? america, you paid for this. >> the overseer of. >> maybe somebody got jobs out of it. >> druglords. are you thrilled about that? >> no, not really. >> created or saved a bunch of drug traffickers' jobs. bravo. >> we agree that this did not work but we have to find a way to track the guns. >>
? >> well, i think he would like a big deal, a big agreement that would do two things. one was it would give the appearance, at least, of having made a major inroad. raising the debt ceiling and the leverage that provides to the republicans who only control one house of the congress further spending cuts. i think those are his two objectives. he wants the big deal because it would give him something to run on. he will could say look, we have taken major steps to improve our country's fiscal situation. and that will help the economy, he will argue. even if the economy hasn't done much between now and then. i think he wanted a deal. yeah. he wanted it on his terms he wanted a deal. >> here is why i disagree with you: last may, the senate voted on president obama's proposed budget cuts 400 billion over 10 years. that's 40 billion a year. 40 billion a year. that's nothing. that's lunch money for what the government spends. he didn't want any spending cuts. that was just three months ago. so how you can say now that he really wants some kind of meaningful deal? he didn't want it in may. why does
to rein in big government spending and prevent tax increases. >> the majority of the house has to approve spending and that's tremendous leverage. we should use it. >> a political analyst says it has an impact on how far g.o.p. speaker john boehner can go in debt negotiation. >> the existence of the freshmen linked creditability to john boehner when he says there are not enough votes for tax increase. >> reporter: president obama is also feeling the pressure from the left flank saying that social security and medicare may need modification to sustain them for the future generation. >> if there is a reasonable deal to be had on it, one i'm willing to pursue. >> that got a strong pushback from nancy pelosi and other liberals. >> today, the democratic women of congress have come together to send a clear message. we must protect medicare and social security. we will not support cuts. >> reporter: if there are cuts to the program in a final deal, it will be a tough sell to the president with the liberal base, which sees itself as cardigan of the entitlement. molly henneberg, fox news. >> shann
would the president come out today and hold this news conference if he didn't have something big to announce? >> reporter: well, i think it may be a matter of using the bully pulpit of the presidency of the united states, essentially putting publish pressure on lawmakers so come back to the bargaining table with some serious ideas that they're willing to give a bit to find a deal. and so it's the president being able to -- the power of the presidency being able to take his case directly to the american public to say here's what i want to do, here's why we have to do it, and here's why we need these other people to get in line or get on board. and so we will see if it helps to make his case or whether it causes the respective constituencies to say well, that's just wrong, we're not going to do that, and whether it, you know, extends the impasse or whether it leads to an ultimate breakthrough. it's not clear at this point. >> and there is the bully pulpit that mike was referring to. mike emanuel, thank you very much, we'll see you after the president speaks. again, we're waiting fo
for stories, that is right. look, many people say that goldman sachs is a big supporter of the obama administration, a big supporter of democrats generally. this is an unfavorable report for the administration so kind of burr right on a friday afternoon. alisyn: interesting. well we're glad that you've brought it to light for us. stu varney thanks so much. another fox news alert for you right now, because we are just getting word that the president is already threatening to veto a bill that will be hitting the house floor tomorrow. the tea party-backed cut, cap and balance plan would provide the president a 2.4 trillion increase on the debt limit, and would also include a constitutional amendment requiring a balanced federal budget. congressman dan hrupb gree l u.n joins me to talk about this live. hello, long man. >> hello. >> we have to see whether he will really veto it. the president has said a lot of things that haven't come true. this is the most leaderless president i've seen in my lifetime. here we have a situation in which we should be coming together, and yet the president
speaker john boehner today. not going for a big huge deal now. this is part of what chuck schumer had to say -- >> shannon: your response? >> i suspect that is more of the grand politics that you hear playing out there. because it was never put on the table. the kind of reform that john boehner has been asking for, the kind of reform i'm talking about. what was put on the table was again, tax hikes on the wealthy. so that we can do less spending reduction. we've got to get out of that paradigm. we've got to get out of the politics. some of the politics poll really well. one of the problem we're having now is pollsters are at full employment. and politicians are following what they are telling them. it's telling them on the one hand don't put social security or medicare on the table. don't talk about those things. on the other hand, just talk about taxing the rich. you will be fine. but that doesn't help us get to a solution. >> shannon: we certainly hope that you find one. we know you are busy not only with the gang of six or five or whatever it currently stands to be but with everyth

. they will try and get 60 votes on this. the big question is they need republicans and are they going to get enough republican votes when they slice and dice this thing to send it back to the house where there i assume they are going to get some republicans but mostly democrats? >> we'll have to see what it is. i have to tell you we have to do two things here. avoid default but avoid downgrade. the proposals on the table there haven't been enough spending cuts or as pat mentioned the balanced budget component is so pop to ge impoo get our fiscal house in order. >> and if we don't get ahold of the growth pattern we are going to be in trouble. senators thank you both for being so patient and for your insight. it will be a long weekend and we appreciate you being with us. tonight, karl rove on the breaking news. and frank let me tell you about a very important phone call i made. when i got my medicare card, i realized i needed an aarp... medicare supplement insurance card, too. medicare is one of the great things about turning 65, but it doesn't cover everything. in fact, it only pays up to 80%
still face some challenges. you know, this economy took a big hit. there are always going to be bumps on the road to recovery. bill: republicans are going to jump all over that, they have already, but here is what you think about politically, stuart n. 2012 and that is this, david plouffe said this week that americans are not voting on the unemployment rate. what do you make of that? because the unemployment rate is a reflection of the hardship so many are experiencing now. >> he said that americans don't look closely at the unemployment rate when they vote, they look at their own personal situation. well, come november of 2012, if in their own personal situation they are surrounded by economic pain, layoffs of all kinds, with very close or no movement in the economy, if they are personally surrounded by pain they're not going to be very happy. bill: there's a lot of pain out there. we hear a lot of talk now about a double-dip recession. watch that. stuart, thank you. >>> wall street not liking what it sees, stock futures tumbling on the news. the dow had been on the rebound of late,
" on this monday, a very special welcome back to jenna lee. jenna: thank you very much. jon: anything big happened while you were gone? jenna: got married, went on a honeymoon. i'm back for good. jon: glad to have you. brand-new developments in the debt showdown as the clock ticks closure to government default. now the tea party is stepping in, pushing its cut, cap and balance plan. jenna: ccp, a measure that raises the limit on america's credit card by another $2.4 trillion, only after big and immediate spending cuts, as well as a constitutional amendment requiring a balanced federal budget. jon: it looks likely to pass in the house but the senate is a very different story. mike emanuel live at the white house for us now. what is the latest from the white house, first of all, mike? >> reporter: jon the white house perspective that this is a huge problem, our nation's debt, so this is the time to do something big and do something bold. it is not clear where the votes will be in terms of trying to do something of that nature. our understanding is from talking to sources, both here at the white hous
's no symptom of big government more menacing than our debt. break its grip, and we begin to liberate our economy and our future. >> i'm asking you all to make your voice heard. if you want a balanced approach to reducing the deficit, let your member of congress know. >> reporter: enough people did, presumably supporters as well as opponents, that the speaker's web site crashed along with those of a couple of other republicans and at least one democrat. republicans say the president wants a long-term debt ceiling hike to keep it out of his re-election bid. democrats say the bond rating agencies want a long-term hike. a short-term one, they say, would risk a downgrade of this country's credit rating, and that would hike credit interest rates on everyone. jon: the overwhelming number of calls coming into senate offices are urging members to oppose the president's call for tax increases, so we'll see. wendall goler, thank you. jenna: for more on this developing story, we're joined by a congressman who says both sides are responsible for the mess we're in. congressman bill pascal of new jerse
